Last night I decided to play around with a turkey burger recipe and it turned out so well! I basically wanted to something along the lines of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner… only not so traditional. Here’s what I did:
Turkey Dinner Burgers
1 lb. ground turkey
1 box stuffing mix
1 jar whole cranberry sauce
In a large bowl, add just enough hot water to the stuffing mix to moisten it. Add ground turkey and half the can of cranberry sauce. Mix well and form patties. Pan-fry in butter. When cooked, top with remaining cranberry sauce.
We put a little mayo on our burgers before we topped them with cranberry sauce and served them alongside french fries with cheese and topped everything with a little gravy. I also served green bean casserole, which for some reason I had in the freezer. I must have bought a box of it by mistake — I never buy it, LOL!
At any rate, it all was very tasty and carbilicious. I need to scale way, way back on the amount of carbs I’m eating because it’s been a lot lately. If it keeps up I’m going to need diet pills! LOL, okay not really (obviously), but still… Good for a treat, though or if you are looking to do something different with ground turkey.
